Xtava 5-In-1 Curling Wand Review
So you know that phrase, you always want what you don’t have. Well that applies to hair too! I naturally have poker straight hair and have always wanted curly hair. And I know lots of girls with curly hair that would die for straight hair. I have always struggled to find hair curlers that give a tight curl and make it last. But maybe this one is the one!
The curler comes packaged in a stunning box. It also includes a bag and a glove which is a nice touch. You will be able to see for yourself how premium it looks but in actual fact it’s so inexpensive!! This can be purchased on amazon for only £21.99. Which if you ask me is a bargain as you basically get 5 hair curlers for the price of one!
Okay so on to the barrels!! There are 5 different barrels ranging from 19 to 32 mm so there is such a variety. 3 of the larger barrels have clips which does make sectioning and curling easy. But I have to say I prefer the look given by the smaller barrels. I would say this is probably just as I have very thin hair so small and more tight curls look better. Although the clips are handy I am a big fan of the clip-less barrels as it gives you a little more freedom.
I think the thinest barrel is definitely my favourite, and in the photos below you will see that barrel in action. The temperature settings can be varied as well which is brilliant for those of you with hard to curl hair. I tend to put the curler on 210 as it makes the curls last for so long but obviously it’s not so brilliant for your hair! Also I never use heat protectant as I saw on a documentary that it basically just fries your hair. Does anyone know if that is entirely true??
This curler would be great for travelling! Having the ability to create 5 different looks with just one hot tool is so handy. These curls also last FOR-EVER! I am an everyday hair washer- I know don’t hate me… so I decided to stop washing my hair just to see how long they lasted. After 3 days the curls were still looking amazing and frizz-less but my greasy hair was getting just a little too much so I had to wash it! If you wash your hair less frequently you could literally curl it once a week and it would definitely last.
I can’t find a down side to these curlers they truly are just fab. They heat up and cool down quickly and create perfect looking curls and are so inexpensive! What more to you want??
